MS12-030: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office Could Allow Remote Code Execution (2663830)

high Nessus Plugin ID 59038


Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Microsoft Office.


The remote Windows host is running a version of Microsoft Office, Excel, or a related product that is affected by several vulnerabilities.

If an attacker can trick a user on the affected host into opening a specially crafted Excel file, they could leverage these issues to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Excel 2003, 2007, 2010, Office 2007, 2010, Excel Viewer, and Office Compatibility Pack.
